"My name is Oscar Olsson. I was born and raised in Umeå (the northern part of Sweden). I have 5 siblings so helping out at home was a must for all of us. My part was often in the kitchen.
I’ve always been an active person in both my career and in sports. When I was 16 years old, I moved to a town called Fagersta for waterskiing and cooking school. In the mornings I learned how to cook and in the afternoons I improved my waterskiing.
After school I moved to Stockholm and took a job in an old french inspired cuisine. I realized that it was a lot of hard work but I loved every minute about it. The speed, the number of plates we did every night, the focus and quality there was on every plate that left the kitchen.
At the age of 28, I moved to Paris to take a further step into the gastronomic world of the French cuisine. When I arrived, I was amazed by the quality of the food. All the products were so much better, and I realized that cooking in France is not just something you do to fill your stomach, it’s a religion. Everything changes by season and even at the smallest grocery store around the corner you can tell the season for prunes, walnuts, shellfish etc.
During my first year I learned a lot about taking care of the products. Making sure that nothing goes to waste and much focus on the tastes. The year after I got a job offer from a private members club in the middle of Paris, where I got the honor to be the head chef for two years before I moved back to Stockholm.
For me the French cuisine is definitely the best in the world. I could not imagine a world without croissants, baguettes, foie gras, fromages, and all the pastries. The love for food and gastronomy in France amaze me and so many others in the whole world.
One of my favorite dishes is Chicken liver with smoked potatoes and grated foie gras.
